Mr. Speaker, last week the Minister of Indigenous Services went to Grassy Narrows to sign an agreement based on a two-year-old promise to a community that has been ravaged by mercury poisoning. However, he returned empty-handed.
Today, in committee, adding insult to injury, the minister blamed the chief, saying that the chief just “changed his mind”.
Let me be clear. Grassy Narrows is calling for what it was promised, including a mercury care home and treatment centre. Grassy Narrows deserves justice, not gaslighting.
When will the Liberal government quit the blame game and keep its promise to the people of Grassy Narrows?
